A Select method is NOT directly exposed to the client. Business methods will use select method.

A Find method is directly exposed to the client.


An ejbSelect method can be called while the bean instance is in the pooled state or ready state.

An ejbFind method can be called while the bean instance is in the pooled state only.

What is the rationale behind it? I think a developer can indirectly expose select method to the client. For instance

public Foo getFoo(){
return selectFoo();
}

Finder methods are used to find OBJECTS.

Select methods can be used to select ATTRIBUTES of certain objects.
